Amid the stifling heat, seven games in seven days. Yet the summer's hottest, most humid stretch of weather seemed to agree with the Wilton Post 86 Senior American Legion baseball team, as the club rattled off six straight wins before losing, 6-1, to Stamford Post 3 Tuesday night at Cubeta Stadium in Stamford.
The victory spurt raised Wilton’s record to 13-6 and moved them deeper into Zone 4 playoff contention. With eight games remaining, Wilton Post 86 is now in fourth place, two and a-half games behind Zone leader Greenwich Post 3 and three and a-half games ahead of fifth-place Westport. The top five Zone 4 finishers move on to post-season play.
